So, WrestleCon seems to be a big deal, and SHIMMER is treating it as such. They're going out of Illinois for only the second time to stage Vol. 53 on Mania weekend, and they're not coming underarmed, that's for sure. They announced that Madison Eagles and Amazing Kong (aka Kharma for the uninitiated) will both return to the fold for the event.

Even more exciting, Evie will make her SHIMMER debut. She's a bit of an unknown quantity to most, but the New Zealand native has turned a LOT of heads down in Australia, a place Dave Prazak and Allison Danger seem to have a great track record of importing from.

These announcements temper an already impressive card. Even though only two matches have been announced, they're both doozies. The main event will be a steel cage match for the SHIMMER Women's Championship - Saraya Knight defending against Cheerleader Melissa. The second match is a rematch from vol. 52, Athena locking horns with Ayako Hamada again. All in all, it looks like SHIMMER is putting all its cards on the table WrestleMania weekend in Secaucus and providing a place for excellent women's wrestling.

Because we all know that it probably won't be taking place inside MetLife Stadium during the big event of the weekend, that's for damn sure.
